Easy Weekday Chicken and Rice

Posted by

This chicken and rice dish is not only about the easiest meal you can make at home; it’s healthy too! The best part is, there are many variations you can use to personalize it and make it a favorite of your family.

Easy Weekday Chicken and Rice

What you’ll need:

  • frozen, boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 4 works well for a small crock pot, but whatever you need for your family)
  • 2 cans of Campbell’s cream of whatever soup (this is where you can personalize)
  • Minute Rice
  • Frozen or fresh vegetables of your choice

You can do this one of two ways. If you’re the kind of person that likes to throw things in the crockpot before heading off to work, you can make this in the crockpot. If you prefer baking in the oven, you can make this meal that way, too.

Place chicken breasts in the crockpot with your cream soup. There’s no need to thaw the chicken first if you’re using the crockpot. If you’re making more than four chicken breasts, you might want to use more than two cans of cream soup. Use your judgement. You can’t really go wrong. You can also use whatever kind of cream soup you like, and you can mix and match if you choose.

Cream of broccoli, cream of chicken, and cream of mushroom are all excellent choices.

Place the crockpot on low heat and allow to simmer all day. All you need to do when you come home from work is make your minute rice, steam your vegetables, and serve!

Oven Version:

Making this dish in the oven is just as easy, but requires a little bit more preparation.

You’ll need to thaw your chicken breasts before baking. Place the chicken breasts in a casserole dish (a light spray of Pam will keep everything from sticking), and pour the soup over top. Using this method, you can add a few bread crumbs to the top to give the dish a bit of a crusty “lid”.

Bake the chicken in for about 30-40 minutes in an oven preheated to 350 degrees, or until chicken is cooked through. While the chicken bakes, prepare your rice and vegetables.

This makes a rich, healthy, and delicious meal with minimal effort. Adding a bit of the soup mixture to the rice before serving gives it a bit of flavor.
